At Binder & Associates, our experienced brain injury attorneys know how these symptoms affect daily life. Some of our clients require long-term care and are no longer able to return to their jobs.

You or a loved one may have suffered a head injury in a car accident, or sustained a cracked skull in a fall, or a car may have hit your child while riding a bike. In any of these situations, a bump, blow, or jolt to the head can cause brain injury that disrupts normal brain function.
